One of the things that makes leaders nervous is the actual meeting. As the leader, you are walking a fine line between parent and teacher. If you are the troop leader for your daughter, chances are that you know several of the girls in your troop already. The meeting is formal, but not as formal as a classroom setting. It is also not a play date, but it also has to be fun.
You cannot have chaos, either. Control is key to making your meeting fun for all and manageable for you as the leader.

After months of thinking about it, I have finally decided to write a blog about my Girl Scout Leader experience.
In October 2008, our local Girl Scout Council had a “Round-Up” at our school. Seated at a table with a few other kindergarten moms, all were interested in having their daughters become scouts–but no one wanted to be the leader! After some discussion, I made the decision to be the leader, as long as everyone else agreed to help out (which lucky for me, everyone did!)
From that point on, I learned everything on my own. It wasn’t easy going, which is why I want to help others who have chosen to be their daughter’s leader.
